Albus Dumbledore’s Net Worth: How Much Was The Headmaster’s Fortune?

An article on EmptyLighthouse.com looked at the net worth of Harry Potter, the main character in the Harry Potter books. After some intense Galleon-to-USD conversions, it came to the conclusion of a $4.6 billion net worth. Go, Harry. A new article looks at the net worth of Albus Dumbledore, headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.  After sifting through his  lengthy, yet impressive, resume, it has been discovered that Dumbledore had a net worth of $2.1 million. As the former Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Dumbledore made approximately $400,000 per year, or 83,164 Galleons, 5 Sickles, and 3 Knuts. His net worth doesn’t stop there, however. Dumbledore was also the Supreme Mugwump of the International Confederation of Wizards, which is equivalent to being the Secretary-General of the United Nations. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon has a net worth of $1.5 million, or 311,866 Galleons, 2 Sickles, and 4 Knuts. Along with being Supreme Mugwump, Dumbledore was also the Chief Warlock of the Wizengamot, which is the Muggle equivalent of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. The current president, Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury, has a salary of $240,508.30 per year. That means Dumbledore racks in another 50,005 Galleons, 3 Sickles, and 11 Knuts.
